Shanghai Extravagence

Digressing from finals week preparation, I wanted to share the Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 show. The full title of the show is actually the Paris-Shanghai Métiers d'Art Collection.

Only Mr. Lagerfeld could construct such an event. It was magical the way the skyline, waterfront, glittering disco-ball and boats became a live backdrop to the impossibly grand runway.

To me, this is fashion: the beauty, the vision, simply this awesome construction of something truly glamorous.

With Abbey Lee Kershaw leading the regime of girls clad in sinful leather trousers, velvet jackets with embroidered sleeves sleeves, sheer gowns, rice-paddy hats in tomato reds, greens and navy blues, not to mention, Baptiste making roughly five appearnces - the show was fabulous.

Check back as I cover Alexander Wang, Versace, Diane von Furstenberg, Zac Posen, Rachel Roy and other Pre-Fall 2010 collections!
